Are you able to cite your measurement sources?

(I have heard this claim of "massive growth in actual IPv6 <foo>" for many years, and I have yet to be able to see such measurements of <foo> or be able to replicate them myself. The measurements I have been undertaking point to a relatively flat line of IPv6 adoption that encompasses around 0.3% - 0.4% of the client base. It leads me to the conclusion that in spite of the principles of faith-based transformation, constant repetition of this particular mantra of the "massive growth in IPv6 deployment" does not make it true!)
